American Airlines might want to think about making a deal with Qatar Airways, which is battling a blockade by the UAE, home of Emirates and Etihad.
Like most airline shares, Alaska Air's share price performance trails the S&P 500. But some analysts like the carrier's movement on merger synergies, unit revenue and a pilot contract.
American Airlines CEO and two of the airline's unions are speaking out against Qatar Airways' bid to invest in the airline.
Qatar Airways says it wants to buy 10% of American Airlines. American Airlines pilots say the effort 'has got to be stopped.'
